Top 3 Competitive Differentiators:

  1. Built into Outlook: Prophet is built into Outlook so no flipping between two applications all the time or manage multiple contact databases. Prophet acts and feels like additional features and functionality to Outlook instead of an entirely different application.
  2. Built with .Net: Building Prophet on the .NET platform means integration at the object level with Outlook as well as easy extension into other parts of your business. Having been built with .Net also ensures that users can easily share Prophet and Outlook information with other applications.
  3. Built to leverage existing Outlook data: Prophet turns Outlook data into the building blocks of an effective sales management solution. Every email sent, meeting appointment made or task created, all can be viewed, tracked and associated with an opportunity. This increases information organization and ease of finding critical pieces of opportunity information.
